Note. SE: standard error, LL/HT: lesion length/seedling height, OL/HT: occlusion length/seedling height, HTI: height growth, BB: new bud-break, Ny: needle dry biomass, Sy: stem dry biomass, FRY: fine root dry biomass, GH: Grosmannia huntii, LT: Leptographium terebrantis, W: wound, WM: wound + media, NW: no wound, and NW -: not applicable. Different letters indicate Tukey pair-wise differences among different inoculations within each variable at α = 0.05.
